Extensive reforms are needed to strengthen the country and to create a modern army.
We, Armenians in the homeland and around the world, are today a divided people. Yet despite our troubles we all remain united by one desire: building an effective state and a stronger army to safeguard our future. Only through total reform is this possible now. But first, we need to know the truth behind the outcome of war. We demand an official inquiry.
Unfortunately, recalling the aftermath of the 2016 war, and looking at the current state of Armenian politics, it’s likely any inquiry entrusted to the government alone will drown in ineffective bureaucracy and political infighting, ignoring the lessons we now desperately need.
Therefore, we demand the National Assembly pass a law establishing an independent truth commission to investigate the causes of last year’s tragedy. Its members must be trusted impartial experts, granted legal authority to summon any witness and access all evidence. And in the public interest, all findings must be made public.
Today, Armenia needs answers. Only when we get them can we focus on rebuilding the dream of a strong independent homeland together. To demand the truth, please sign below.
